If you want a cruiser you can wheelie and powerslide, then the 2017 Octane might be for you. Of course, we don’t recommend you doing either, but you get the picture.
With a cast aluminum frame and a 1,200-cc V-twin, the 2017 Octane from Victory Motorcycles is lightweight, powerful and fast. How fast? According to Victory, it can run the quarter mile in 12 seconds and hit 60 miles per hour in under four seconds. It was also used by American stunt rider Joe Dryden to set a new Guinness World Record for longest motorcycle burnout (3.58 kilometres).
Labelled a modern-day American muscle bike, the Octane is stripped of any shiny parts, featuring an all blacked-out exterior and matte finish.
Of course there are mixed feelings toward the Octane. Some praise this bike’s tire-shredding power and nimble feel. Others say it’s a repackaged Indian Scout, which is also produced by Polaris Industries. The Octane does resemble the Scout, but take a closer look at it and you’ll see there are many striking differences.
